Hi John. Thanks for writing. The tracks are used by Muni, so I don’t think they’ll fill them in. I recently asked MTA to take a look and see how those tracks can be made safer.

Hi John,

My name is Ann Fryman, legislative aide to Supervisor Scott Wiener. We are planning a street safety meeting for next week with the bike coalition and TomMacGuire’s bike team at SFMTA about possible safety improvements for cyclists at these key intersections. Even though removing the tracks is not an option at this point, we want to aggressively pursue adequate signage and possible paint/lighting improvements to ensure safety to cyclists on 17th or Church in that area. Please let me know if you’d be available to come to meet at City Hall next Wednesday afternoon,7/13.

I am a cyclist too and have gotten in a couple nasty wrecks at night on those tracks. Thank you for bringing attention to this issue.

Hi John,

We have room 278 at City Hall reserved for this discussion on Tuesday 7/12 at 3pm.

I hope you are able to attend. Leaders from the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition and senior engineers from the SFMTA’s Livable Streets Design team are also going to be there. Our office is very motivated to purue high-impact solutions to this hazardous intersection that can be implemented quickly.

Please let me know if you are able to attend.
